I guess I'm in the "Happy Time" now. I'm currently in St. Nazaire. Last night I attacked a convoy. Thought i was aiming at an ore carrier but was actually a C&D class! I was even using the ore carrier info in the id book! Didn't realize the mistake till the eel hit and lit up the night. Hey, one less escort to worry about. I swung the scope over to the ore carrier and let off two good ones and crash dived. Escorts were hoppin' mad. BOOM. BOOM. BOOM! All around me. "Das boot iss boo-shady, Herr Kaleun!"

"Boo-shady". Every Kaleun dreads hearing "boo-shady".

"Take 'er deep, Chief! Flank speed!"

We were near the mouth of the St. George Channel so we had to be careful of dragging our balls in the sand. At about 80 meters we leveled off and went to silent running.

No one made a peep. Not laughing Joe, Hiccuping Hinrich or even Willi "The Farter" Erlichmann, who was notorious for blowing ballast at the mere splash of a WB. All they could do was stare at the maze of pipes above their sweaty faces.

Then we heard the pinging.

"Steer south, Chief. Get ready to gun it as soon as Witterman gives the word."

And so he did. "Wasserbombs in the water, sir", he hissed.

The Chief didn't need to hear from me. "Ahead flank" he whispered, ratcheting the telegraph.

It was seven hours before we lost the escorts. Still I refrained from giving the order to secure from silent running for another hour and even then the repair crews were on edge tinkering diligently but delicately, lest a dropped wrench or torch should again bring the ravenous escorts upon them.

After we surfaced I ordered course to the south away from the isles to look for less challenging game, which we found. By the time we returned to St. Nazaire we had bagged ourselves six ships.

I'm diggin' the oakleaves. Makes me look more distinguished somehow. Especially to the ladies.

:D

:rotfl2:

"Boo-shady" is totally my new slang term for "damaged," "messed up," or anything else of that nature.



"Hey, did you hear Lindsey Lohan is going back to rehab?"

"Yeah, that poor girl is totally boo-shady."

I believe that is the actual German word used in the game. :yep:

However I am going to use boo-shady at every opportunity until it catches on or I get bored with it or forget about it entirely. Either of the latter two could happen at any moment of course. :O:

So I had a really odd and interesting patrol. It was February of 1940. I was ordered to patrol AN26
(Curse BDU for giving me shallow waters.. A'holes -_- as Frau Kaulen likes to say, that is Boo Shady :yeah:) So I get there and get notice of a convoy heading SSE from inbetween Scapa Flow and the island NE of it (not sure of the name) I make for a intercept and apparently they changed course because I couldnt find them. So I end up picking up a merchant contact. Lo and behold its a Ore Carrier, my lucky day. Four torps later she sunk (I fired a salvo because something didnt feel right, so I figured Id be sure) I started to head back when I pick up another contact, this time it was a ASW trawler steaming straight for me, this was going to get interesting. Considering he had heard me and I was in very shallow waters, I decided to fight him, I fired two torps that WOULD have hit had I not had auto-loading on and my bow torp room decided to load the STEAM eels I had in my extra reserve slots. So with a little luck and him chasing me, as well as zig zagging I fired my Aft eel (electric) with a magnetic switch, and caught him right in the middle as he was coming across my bow (zigging of course) sunk. Phew, time to whipe the sweat from my forehead. I started heading North again back to AN 26 and ended up meeting 2 more medium merchants, the rest of my torps were used and I sunk em. Leaving one torp left. So as I finished my patrol and was on my way home, I encountered a Large Merchant, and lined up and fired, forgetting again I was using steams, which she saw and dodged. Angerly I surfaced and pursued (it being early 1940) and sunk that SOB with my deck gun, 10,000 tons down to the bottom for me :) All in all, I got 34,000 grt on my patrol with 5 ships sunk, an interesting patrol for myself if I do say so myself. I even recieved an Iron Cross 2nd class :arrgh!: as well as a first class one, 2nd class one, many u boat war badges, and a promotion for my sailors. :rock: U-19 is going to try for another patrol tonight and see what magic she can work :yeah:

Scapa's on the south side of the Orkneys, the islands just NE of those are the Shetlands.

Pretty odd and interesting patrol, since those ships add up to only about 28K.

Great patrol, bad sea story.

Your ration at the O-club just got halved.

Okay
A) I can show you the patrol logs.

B) I told it off the top of my head, Im sorry if I dont remember every exact detail of which ship and how many tons it was worth.

C) In case you don't remember, SH3 Commander randomizes the tonnage of each ship so even though they might not add up to 28k to you, I may have gotten lucky and got the higher tonnages.

:down: Boo for you, Ill take my ration back tyvm.

That's probably it but to my cracker ears it sounds like boo-shady. :DL

It is - das Boot ist beschädigt means the boat is damaged.

Of course now I'm going to be hearing Boo-Shady as well every time my LI says it. :D


Edit: I just realized there's probably a file somewhere that controls the text in the text panel. I wonder if there's a line for "the boat is damaged" that can be changed to "the boat is boo-shady"...

Doing anything with the voices would be beyond my skills - but if I could find the file that controls the text that comes along with them... if there is such a file and it's possible to edit it.

We actually had a thread going a while back about rewriting all in-game radio messages in Lolcat:


From: BdU
To: U-57

Oh hai! We can haz invaded Polandz. Frants an Englund sez, dey see wut we did dere. Iz torpedo time? IZ TORPEDO TIME!

Im sure there would be, I mean, it IS scripted to appear in a certain way at certain times, so there would have to be a text file SOMEWHERE, the trick is to find it :P
